Title (name of project [pick something creative!], your name, name of course, instructor’s name, date of completion)
Select 10 photos that reveal the unique qualities of this space, how it is used, decorated and arranged. Think especially about the cultural rules and behaviors that dictate how the space is engaged.
Write detailed descriptions that help us to understand the cultural needs this space satisfies.
Create a photo profile of someone who interests you
Consider picking someone who is culturally different from yourself.
Think about groups that you have little or no interaction with or knowledge about and that you are curious to learn more about.
Try to choose someone who is different from you in multiple dimensions of diversity (i.e., race, gender, sexual orientation, nationality, disability, age, social class, religion, primary language, etc.).
With your subject’s permission shoot a series of photographs that you and they think reveal who they are and how they live. They may want to change costumes and show you who they are in different settings that they inhabit. (You may choose to focus on one aspect of their cultural world…and just photograph that.)
Print out the best photos and return to have them reflect on what they say. Have them write out their responses…
Prepare a presentation that incorporates their comments on who they are, what their cultural practices mean to them as well as your anthropological view of their world(s).
